Anne’s Sesame Vinaigrette Dressing

I simply cannot buy store bought dressing....I can't help it...they are never as good as I want them to be and it  always seems a huge waste of calories that ruins a good salad.  I have been hording dressing recipes ever since I gave up on finding a good dressing at the store.  

I have finally found my favorite Caesar dressing recipe and come to the realization that the only ranch you can buy in the store that I will like is the dry Hidden Valley Buttermilk Ranch recipe made at home, but the only dressing I have ever bought and been 100% satisfied with is the Sesame Seed Vinaigrette Dressing from Corner Market sold at the Granny White Market, The Produce Place and, ironically enough, the BP in Belle Meade beside Sportsman's Grille.  When I saw Anne Calyton's article in nFocus a few years ago I thought I would give her recipe a could I go wrong....she had done all the hard work of trial and error and I was able to gain from the fruits of her labor!  What a deal!

Recently a friend of mine at work suggested I add that to my blog as it is a Nashville staple and anyone who knows anything about Nashville cooking knows the advantage of a good Sesame Seed Vinaigrette like the one we used to get at Corner Market.  Well here it is my friends, one of my all time favorite dressing in the world!!

Anne’s Sesame Vinaigrette Dressing
¼ cup of rice wine vinegar
1½ teaspoons onion powder
1½ teaspoons garlic powder
½ teaspoon white pepper
1 tablespoon mustard powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons of sugar
¾ cup canola oil
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Blend all ingredients except the oil and sesame seeds in a blender. Add canola and sesame oil to the running blender and mix for about 30 seconds. 
Pour into your serving vessel, add one heaping tablespoon of sesame seeds and let rest. Adjust salt.
We tried this over an avocado and Mozzarella salad...
Pin It!

  4. A blender isn't something that you can easily scrap and buy a new one so the research process is very important. Even if takes a bit of time, do your research properly before spending your money on any blender. Matt
